Superb saxophone work, compositions and ingeniously rhythmic lines

‘Superb saxophone work, intellectually stimulating writing and ingeniously dovetailed rhythmic lines are the three sides that form the musical shape on ‘Trigonometry’
All About Jazz-New York

Jazz saxophonist/composer Jacam Manricks and his ensemble of internationally renowned Jazz artists from New York are touring Australia and New Zealand in promotion of Jacams current album release ‘Trigonometry’ (Positone Records). The tour will feature Jacam's highly acclaimed compositions performed by a world-class ensemble including Eric McPherson on drums (Jackie McLean, Andrew Hill & Kurt Rosenwinkle), Linda Oh on bass (Dave Douglas & Kenny Baron) and Manricks on saxophones. The tour will also feature Wangaratta Jazz Festival competition winner pianist Jackson Harrison.

After completeing his doctorate in composition from Manhattan School of Music in 2007 Manricks has received over 40 outstanding reviews from internationally respected music magazines and newspapers. Here’s what Downbeat Magazine and Jazz Times had to say about Jacams music.

“(Manricks) does for jazz what author Walt Whitman did for existentialism, he gives the genre meaning that people can relate to and apply to their own lives.”
Jazz Times, Susan Frances 6/17/09

“(Manricks is) A composer beyond the confines of genre perception…mellifluous…meditative…beautifully contoured…An impressive collection of pieces”
DownBeat, Micheal Jackson

Manricks has toured his band throughout North America, Canada, Europe & Australia with great success. His live performances have been exceptionally well received and written about by Jazz critics in Australia, America and Europe. Here’s what critics have said about live performances by Manricks and his band.

“…Jacam Manricks breaks the mould by being a star as a composer….

(Manricks) creates sophisticated pieces, some with multiple sections providing different contexts for improvisation, often obliging players to contribute in specific ways to a composition’s shape, rather than just blowing over chord changes.

Much more than clever, these pieces take the listener on unfolding journeys...”

The Sydney Morning Herald, The Seymour Center-Sydney June 2008. Reviewed by John Shand
